I just googled and didn't find any footprints, but what beautiful birds. I'm so very sorry for your loss.

Re: Grieving a loss

Hello. Thank you for sharing.
And thank you for giving me a wonderful idea. May I steal it, please? My bird is 33 this year, and I have long searched and wondered about a suitable tat. Nothing ever seemed quite right, but a foot print... wonderful. Intimate, loving, yet so playful.
May I use your idea?

P.S.
Just right up there on the shoulder, as if left by a perching bird, I think...

Re: Grieving a loss

In the interest of historical accuracy, would there also be a tattoo of a "boon" running down the shoulder? Bite print on arm?

Re: Grieving a loss

Ms. 'Enne... that would be perfect, wouldn't it?????
My imagination is running wild...
We love them so much... even their abuse and poop.
This thread really has me sad, and misty, and smiling, all at once.

I had also recently been thinking of this as my next tattoo, although I was thinking a set of tiny footprints running up my arm. I think it's a beautiful idea regardless and a tattoo that is very meaningful.

Re: Grieving a loss

My deepest condolences for your loss of Molly. I am sure her loss is especially sad as she grew with you through the formative years.

The largest cockatoo I have that can be handled is a Goffin, far smaller than Molly. May I make a suggestion? If your town has an animal crematory, it may be possible to obtain an image. Most offer a claw imprint in clay that is provided with the urn or cedar chest containing the remains. With an owner's permission, they may allow you to take an image of a suitable imprint.

This should help I found one of the bottom of a foot on line as well. Just not sure exactly how it would look imprinted.

Thank You!

Yes you may. Could I ask to see a picture of the print you get to use for the tattoo so I can better envision what details will show up on the print of the foot.
